Report: Libya Was CIA Operation

The CIA and the State Department allegedly had a secret deal for security that went disastrously wrong in Benghazi in the weeks prior to the attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, according to a report in Friday's Wall Street Journal. When the bodies of the four slain Americans arrived in the U.S., noticeably absent from the funeral procession was CIA director David Petraeus, which officials told the Journal was due to Petraeus's efforts to hide the CIA's role in the botched security plan. But the CIA and the State Department reportedly "weren't on the same page" about their respective roles, and the rift between the two agencies is considered one of the key reasons why security seemed inadequate in the days following the attack.
